Cybersecurity Architect, Junior

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your Cyber architecture skills to design and build secure systems for the DoD? We’re looking for an architect who can help create solutions for DoD that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As Cyber solutions architect on our project, you’ll design a secure communications network to support mission critical operations. You’ll work with in house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll research new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. On our team, you’ll learn how to take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of critical mission systems. We help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint based detection, response EDR, multi-factor authentication, identity and access management, and advanced analytics. You’ll be able to gain experience in automation, orchestration, and complex system of systems security while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve mission assurance through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
